User Reviews

 
Sensitive and authentic
12 January 2019 | by jasmintiggesSee all my reviews

This film about the childhood of germanys most famous comedian went deep under my skin. Not only for fans of Hape Kerkeling this is a true loveletter to individuality and crazyness. The local dialect and peculiarities of the "Ruhrgebiet area" are on point and reminded me of my own childhood. Also: strong female roles and great acting. Treat yourself!
